If it weren’t for the archival nature of ceramics, we’d have little insight into the rainy-day activities of ancient Greeks. Make your own lasting, creative mark with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pottery painting at Mud About You in Penfield.
Mud About You provides everything amateur artists need to paint and preserve ceramic keepsakes for decoration or everyday use. Choose from a large variety of ceramic pieces ($1–$100), such as a personalized mug ($15+) that displays a helpful daily reminder to relax, pet the dog, or drive to the office. Young iconoclasts can revel in the rebellious rush of eating off of the earth without the ickiness of eating off of the ground with a hand-decorated clay plate ($22+). The price of your pottery includes use of the studio's rainbow of paints and a clear glaze firing to seal in your handiwork. After a week, kiln-fired pieces are ready for retrieval and ready to fit right in on the adobe walls of your home or one of its many earthen end tables. Check out Mud About You’s Flickr page for artwork examples.
The sunny studio welcomes families full of budding artists, but it also invites small groups of adults to bring food and wine to celebrate girls' nights out or boys' afternoons away. No appointment is necessary.
Mud About You was featured in St. John Fisher College’s Cardinal Courier in the "Lost in Rochester" column:
- …the whole idea of being my inner-child and playing with paints will always be exciting. It was nice to sit down and get away from the everyday stresses of college life and put them behind me for a little while. – Tori Parmenter, Cardinal Courier
